The United Nations has been encouraging communications and outreach initiatives on Yemen’s transition since 2012, including through the provision of expertise, funding and logistical support. Support was provided to the Preparatory Committee to develop a communications and public outreach strategy for the National Dialogue, and later for the Secretariat to establish a Media Centre and Community Outreach Unit. The objective was ensuring the transparency of the Dialogue and political processes, engaging the public-at-large across Yemen, allowing public participation in the decision making process through a special mechanism, and providing feedback to the National Dialogue. Key to all of this were traditional and new communications tools, awareness campaigns, field visits and face-to-face meetings.
